I have now put together the utility that I threatened a few weeks ago. FileValet is a combination of an OS X application and an Applescript. The application reads Civ3 saved game files, can extract some limited information about the state of the game, and can optionally save them as compressed files with any incompatible Windows multiplayer data removed. The Applescript can be used as a Droplet or as a Folder Action. In Droplet mode you can use it to compress manually saved games prior to submission for GOTM or for SGs or PBEM games. In Folder Action mode it is particularly interesting as a basis for creating a compressed archive of all the auto-saves created during a game. Please see the enclosed Help file for more details, and let me know if you have any problems with it, or suggestions for improvement. I have attempted to write it to be compatible with Panther, but I have only tested it with Tiger 10.4.5. Version History: Version 1.0b1 18-03-06 First beta - 3 downloads Version 1.0b2 18-03-06 Panther compatible Version 1.1b1 Just a zipped folder. Now expands or compresses BIQ, BIX, BIC files. Leopard and Snow Leopard only.
